Thawing Out

It has been over a week since our first snow of 2011.  We still have snow...and ice. 

I love snow.  It is beautiful.  Here in the South, the world seems to stop with snow.  It's quiet.  Peaceful.  

A snow like this one comes about every 10 years or so.  I am convinced it is God's way of slowing us down.  We are all too busy.

No school.  No appointments.  No basketball games.  No traffic.  

Instead, there is a ton of snuggles, movies, games, drawing/painting, and smores.  

I spent a ton of time cooking.  I have read several posts by other bloggers that talked about how being stuck in the house causes them to cook....all day....every day.  It is true for me, too.  I made homemade chicken noodle soup, potato and ham soup, brownies, etc.  I can't thank my mother enough for "making" me help in the kitchen as I grew up.  Not only do I have a ton of recipes that I cook all the time, but she taught me the basics.  Cooking is now pure enjoyment for me.  The grocery store is NOT.

As I stated last week:  When snow is on the ground for more than 3 days, it snows within 3 weeks.  It's an old wives' tale, but seems to be true.  

So....we wait. 

And we wonder.

Will that wives' tale be accurate?

When will make up all these school days?  Ugh.
